Responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented increased safety practices for participants and staff of the WCA 2022, following the Polish pandemic directives:

  • Participants must present a certificate of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (EU COVID certificate or equivalent). The maximum allowed number of event participants who do not have full vaccination is 150; all must complete and present the COVID declaration provided by the organizers.
  • Participants must keep 1.5m distance from other persons.
  • Participants must wear masks covering their mouth and nose in all public spaces; veils, scarves, or visors are not allowed. A presenter may remove the mask when they are on the lectern.
  • Staff members wear PPE (face masks, gloves, etc.) based on the activities they are performing.
  • Public spaces are frequently cleaned and disinfected, particularly areas with high traffic such as restrooms, elevators, and escalators. Hand sanitizing stations are provided.
